    Do I pair my kids magic bands with my phone as well?

    Hiya Allison! Welcome to planDisney. We’re so happy you’re here!

    With your visit to Walt Disney World Resort just around the corner, I'm sure you want to get prepping and packing, so I'm glad you reached out with your excellent question! So, let’s not waste another moment and get to it!

    Allison, if you are managing the plans for your entire family, including your little ones, I would definitely recommend linking their MagicBands to your My Disney Experience account. As you link them, you will be able to assign each one to the specific child it belongs to. Then, all of your plans will be matched up to the MagicBands, making it easy to scan into the theme parks, access the Genie+ Lightening Lanes, and more!

    Now, to link the MagicBands, head over to your My Disney Experience app and open the menu by clicking on the three stacked lines in the bottom right corner. Next, click on the “MagicBands and More” tile. From there, you’ll see a list of all the Guests in your party. To add their MagicBand, click on “Link a MagicBand or Card” under your child’s name. You can then use the scanner feature to tap and add your MagicBands, or you can toggle over to “Type ID” and manually enter the number from the back of the MagicBand. Finally, follow the prompts, and you’re all set! Pretty easy, right?

    I am just so excited for you to visit Walt Disney World in just a few short days! I know you will have an amazing time, especially since you will be visiting during The Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration! Please visit us again soon with any other questions you may have!

    Until next time,
